I am so excited!

My homeschool received a grant from the National Endowment for Humanities. It is a Picturing America Award. It includes 40 reproductions of American art and a teacher resource book.

I am looking forward to discussing this with my homeschool group to see if we could use it for an art/art history class so more students can benefit from the wealth of this grant.

Dear Lord,
I was so surprised by the letter I received via e-mail today telling me about this grant. I had forgotten about applying for it. Thank you for sending this to brighten things up here during the cold dreary winter. It is a reminder that spring will come as the package should arrive in March or April.

MRI results

YDS had a "hypno" appointment with his pediatrician. The doc teaches children self hypnosis to aid in dealing with headaches. While we were there, I got the MRI results which showed a little fluid in his sinuses, but nothing to worry about and no brain abnormalities. HURRAY!!!!! YDS is supposed to practice the self hypnosis daily, but it is supposed to be "his thing" and I am not supposed to remind him/help him. Hopefully this will help him with the headaches.

Thank you for the good news.
